    We made stepping stones that turned out fantastic - and the cost was VERY
    low. I purchased some of those cheap pans that you put under pots to keep
    the water contained (I know they have names - just don't know what they're
    called). Fill these with Quikrite (SP?) cement. Have the kids decorate them
    while the cement is still wet. They can stick in anything from broken tiles
    to little green army men! After the cement dries just pop them out of the
    plastic containers and you're ready to start again. I spent less than $10
    and was able to make appx. 30 stepping stones with leftover supplies.
